of students with specific goals and general education and our diverse learners that benefit as you can understand from teachers with a repertoire of strategies. in gathering this general data we have contracted with pearson's review 360 and a screening tool that makes it easier to input aggregate behavioral student trends. i want to emphasize for the community that this universal screening is not a test or evaluation of students or pupils, but rather it's a teacher survey to collect teacher's observations of people's behavior. all of the information that is collected has been directly observed by families doing their daily responsibilities to manage student behavior. the survey doesn't require teachers to do psychological testing or any mental health assessments as stated in the letter. please note above that the universal screening data would be used to determine if there are enhancements needed to support students in school or what supplemental or methods are necessary. i also want to call everyone's attention this is mendoza and we have joining our president and celebrating ja
literally impoverished societies because educated women refused to allow they're sons to fight in theal bonn. you have a less educated mother here. single parent in the difficult system. the higher education a women has the more likely her son is to go on with education rather than getting into violence and drugs and certainly she won't condone her son getting into a gang or drugs. i've sometimes been criticized for that because they say all the 911 hijackers were educated and had university degrees and that certainly is true. but nobody botherd to check they're mothers and nearly all of them were i late rate an illiterate. exciting news and then i have to unfortunately talk to you about negative news. i've been in perhaps 120 cities over the past 14 months talking to maybe 50,000 people and i ask this question most places i go and i'll ask you today. how many of you are aware of the fact in afghanistan today, there's 5 point 2 million children going to school and 1 point 8 million of those are female and in 2000 there was only 8 hundred 6,000 kids in school. how many of you k
children's future brighter, we will invest in our education system. from before they enter kindergarten to the time they leave higher education, we must prepare them to succeed in a 21st century economy. and if we are sincere in our concern for the next generation, how we deal with one another matters, not only during this session but also throughout the campaigns that bring us to these positions of public trust. every day, our kids watch what we do and learn from our example. members of the 63rd legislature, what i ask of you tonight is simple and straightforward: first, be responsible with our budget, because i won't allow you to spend more than we take in or make cuts that undermine our long-term stability. second, join me in focusing on creating jobs, investing in education, and making government more effective, and lastly, act in a manner that we're not ashamed to have our children watching, because they are. i am taking these principles to heart, and we've hit the ground running to create better jobs, better schools and a more effective government. a company recently came to the s
celebration of sfusd's early education department's 70th anniversary whereas sfusd early education department's preschool programs were established in 1943 by president franklin eleanor roosevelt work projects administration to provide the city's families with care and education for preschool age children during world war ii. whereas eed began with four sites. today eed has grown to 43 sites that serve over 4,000 students including infants, toddlers, preschool opportunities, transitional kindergarten, other students and tk as well as fifth grade students during non school hours. over 90% receive completely free or subsidized care based on their family income and more than 75% of families served a language other than english at home. whereas sfusd's strategic plan contains three main goals: access and equity, student achievement and accountability, and calls out the achievement gap as one of the greatest civil rights issues facing the district. whereas decades of research has shown that providing children with early education opportunities can have significant positive impact o
of this increase. my commitment to k-12 education has also increased spending for our schools. but we must only allow for growth that our fragile economic recovery can bear. in this budget we've reduced the tax burden on local businesses, we've addressed increasing caseloads, and we've begun to diversify our economy. the social service net is stronger. support for education is increased. and nevadans will continue to benefit from the overarching policy of this administration throughout this economic down turn. that is, we cannot cut our way out, we cannot tax our way out, we can only grow our way out. [applause] as nevada prepares to celebrate 150 years of statehood, we must also consider how far we have come and prepare for what lies ahead. 2014 is not just the anniversary of nevada's statehood. it also marks the centennial year of the approval of women's suffrage in our state. nevada gave women the right to vote in 1914, five years before the rest of the nation adopted the 19th amendment in 1919. [applause] it is my hope that the celebration of women's suffrage and the commemoration of nevada
is structured. first, our department of education. last year, for the first time ever, the house passed a bill that would allow governors to appoint the superintendent of education. i cannot overstate how important this change is. and all we're asking is that we give the voters the opportunity at the ballot box to make this constitutional change. general zais supports it. the south carolina house of representatives supports it. and i believe that if given the opportunity, the people of south carolina will support it at the ballot box. let's give them that opportunity. they deserve it. [ applause ] now to the department of administration. each of the last two years, i've made the argument as to why ridding our state of the big, green monster that is the budget control board would move south carolina forward. some of you like senators larry martin and shane massey have made that argument with me. i believe most of you know it is the right thing to do. instead, i will make this observation. if one came to south carolina from another state or country and saw the way the department of administrati
with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is unacceptable behavior, and i am often fearful when we try to develop a black letter law if you have all these factors and bullying and you fell outside and that works okay in the courtroom. right? as prosecutors we need clear understanding of the laws to understand whether we have a criminal violation or not, but i am fearful we maybe overly legalistic and the way we deal with on a daily basis and we need to approach this by a global perspective respecting people and understanding we have the same rights and obligations and starting with the adults and i go back to the adults because the adults really have to tow the line here. they really have to walk the talk. i cannot tell you how often i of involved in large mentoring efforts and now in two different places, in l.a. and arizona. i cannot tell you how often the teachers are the ones that set the tone whether we have a respectable environment or and
and accident chief of the education department and i'd like to ask in chief and other supervisors (naming names) please come forward as we honor our department on the 75th anniversa anniversary. thank you so much for being here. today, i'm asking all my colleagues on the board in recognizing the education department open it's 75th anniversary. in the past 70 decades we've provided education opportunity for thousand or so of youth and this closing the gap for a lot of children's education. now we have over 10 education sites in our school district including students and kindergartner schools. my daughter was at the top and other student were at the top in my district so i know the staff does a great job >> san francisco unified is one of the largest providers in southern california and one of the providers in the state that invests in preschool education. and many
, breed, chiu, farrell, kim, mar and wiener. higher education truly is the key to success in this country and the ability of many students to attend an institution of of higher learning is based largely on their ability to secure financial assistance. i know from my own personal experience i'll not be here today sitting in this chair without the ability to have received financial assistance to go to college and to go to law school. unfortunately, the cost of the higher education continues to rise for private, public and for profit community colleges thought this country and students and families in san francisco are right now in the ross pros of making very important decisions about their future. so it is critical that we as a city increase the awareness about financial aid and how the process worgz and specifically the free application for federal student aid, the f a f s a application, which if completed will ensure that student have access to the many reresource available to them and it helps student but it helps us all because it ensures that they get the education that they need fo

the process of a carbon constrained world as a means to invent a more prosperous future and drive education and industry and jobs and growth. we can act like the heart of a forward moving country whose eyes and ears are open to the world. i believe that all of us here in maryland are truly covered by the shield of his goodness. we need only the goodness to let go of falsehoods, mention this, the shortsightedness of rash and in balanced decisions, the things of our past that no longer serve. once leaving them behind, we will make a new world free from fear and worthy of our children's love and trust. thank you all very much.

amount of the public education enrichment fund that in the district materials that would be transmitted to the city, the mayor and the board of supervisors and the other city officials, that we would specify that -- we would make some sort of a statement that we would -- we expect full funding or appropriation from the city for 13-14 -- i actually haven't shared with this chris and kathy and part of that why is so because in the mayor's state of the city address yesterday he remarked about his intention to fully fund the public education enrichment fund and specified the amounts of funding that would be associated with the appropriation for 13-14 and i confirmed with the mayor's budget director one-on-one just to make sure we were crystal clear about the intention. that that was the right interpretation and she confirmed it was so and we could share that information with our board members and stakeholders which is why you all received the email that you did this morning from dr. crawford, so based on that commissioner wynns i see your point that it may still be good to memorialize that
